Teresa Giudice is an Idiot

by at . Comments

In October, Teresa Giudice and her husband filed for bankruptcy. The couple owes $11 million to creditors and has been in and out of court this month in an attempt to stop an August 22 auction of their home and belongings.

For that reason, a recent shopping spree by Giudice makes her seem more insane than co-star Danielle Staub:

According to receipts uncovered by The New York Post, Teresa spent $8,800 for curtains and almost $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs, all since the time of her bankruptcy filing.

In response, attorney Jim Kridel has tried to keep a straight face this week as he defends his clients.

“That was the money she earned as an advance for her book Skinny Italian,” Kridel said. “Since she earned it after the filing, she was absolutely free to spend it.

"If she put it in the bank, they’d say, ‘Why don’t you pay your creditors,’ and the trustee might freeze the assets while he investigates whether she can spend it or not... Legally you are entitled to spend money you earn after a bankruptcy."

Ethically? It's not like we thought Giudice possessed morals anyway.

“She needed to re-buy furniture because she didn’t have any furniture in the house,” said Kridel. “It’s a big house  and she wanted furniture consistent with her style on the show. There is nothing wrong with doing that, except that it doesn’t look good for her to be doing it.”

The auction in question has been pushed back to October 3.

If she owes that much money, why do the stores and restaurants continue to accept her credit cards? If she pays by cash then maybe they have a safe in the house loaded with money and that is how she still is able to buy stuff etc.

She's a fraud x 10.

Why not put that money in trust for the children instead of wasting it on a house she could possible lose?

Well it all kind of makes sense. After the first $8 million debt there is no way in hell you're ever going to pay back that stuff, so what's an extra $60 000 on champagne, a couple of curtains and an all you can eat at Vito's Lobster house down the road? Let's hope unlike her pal- Danielle Staub who'll probably be forced to put out another sex tape (to stay afloat) now that she got fired that Teresa stays in the producer's good graces otherwise it's going to be a long time before Teresa drops another $48 million on a lobster roll and trinkets.
